Sacramento Police/ Sheriff's Memorial Foundation
In 1992, the Sacramento Police/Sheriff's Memorial Foundation was formed to perpetually honor Sacramento Police Officers and Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputies who have been killed in the line of duty. The Foundation's initial charge sought to construct a permanent memorial site and host an annual ceremony which honors the grave sacrifice these law enforcement officers made in defense of the citizens of our community. In 2002, the Foundation completed construction and dedicated the site that now exists within Woodlake Park at 500 Arden Way. Since then, the Foundation hosts an annual remembrance ceremony during the month of May, adding a memorial bollard when a Sacramento law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty. The initial construction of the Memorial came from the benevolence of private donations, many of which are City employees. With the Memorial now built, the Foundation continues to provide upkeep and maintenance for this site, as well as ensure that the brave men and women enrolled at this memorial site are never forgotten.
